First Dance Ideas * r&b

We can't decide  we like old school song like Al Green, Stevie Wonder, even some newer songs like Robin Thicke's Lost w/o U, or Maxwell, Lenny Kravitz. Anyone have any suggestions?

We're using Kenny Lattimore's "For You".  As far as Stevie Wonder I love that song "Overjoyed".

Christinelvsry, I love the songs you've already chosen.  Of all of those, I'd probably vote for R.Thicke-Lost Without You.  My fiance & I are in between either Chrisette Michele-Golden, Mercy Me-Beautiful, or Kenny Latimore-For You.

One song that we're thinking of is "I belong to you" by Lenny Kravitz.  We love that song.

Van Morrison's "Into The Mystic" and "These Are The Days" are my two favorite VM songs...and there's always his version of "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You."

What do u think about my bridal entrance song "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by ISRAEL KAMAWIWO OLE (what along name). It's like a Hawaiian re-make. You know the song that Jason Castro from AI sang.  I love that song I get so teary eyed everytime I hear it. Hopefully I won't be ballin by the time I reach the alter.
